If you follow social media, you will find a lot of interesting things to read. And, as you can imagine, the things that I read are most wine-related… but this morning when I was reading “the news” on twitter, something struck me just like a bomb:
“I live in a world of leisurely wine lunches and sumptuous dinners in a society and planet that is seemingly imploding.” -> Randall Grahm
Wow! I believe that Randall hits the nail on the head…
I’m not even in the same ball park with Randall when it comes to “leisurely wine lunches and sumptuous dinners”, but I do my share of wine events that are totally isolated from the hard reality. The one people see on TV with so many wars, crimes and poverty.
While there are bombs falling somewhere and people are getting killed, I am (and many of my friends) posting pictures of bottles of wine, food, vineyards…
So… that raises a few questions:
- Do you believe that we – #winelover-s – live in a bubble?
- Do we want to be in this bubble on purpose or we don’t even realize that we are?
- Should we feel bad about it?
Thank you very much for taking the time to think about it!
